Model Development for A University-Based Learning Disability Clinic.
Martin, Larry L.; And Others
The report presents a model for appraisal and individualized educational programing for learning disabled children at the School of Education, Auburn University, Alabama. Descriptions by clinic staff of visitations to exemplary models and a summary of a regional conference on learning disabilities introduce the report. The clinic model is explained in terms of a definition of learning disability, theory (modified to be compatible for computer usage), and application (including three detailed case studies). Thirty-seven abilities were isolated and a battery of tests identified to provide multiple measures of each process area. Results were incorporated in a computer program designed to generate a profile of each student's strengths and weaknesses and to indicate conflicted test results. The case studies include a detailed summary of test results (in computer printout form) and a narrative profile which discusses the following areas: strengths, weaknesses, learning style, program implementation, recommendations for parents, and recommendations for school. The major portion of the document consists of 31 appendixes such as: a listing of advisory board members and duties, flow charts, parent letters, testing schedule, student intake form, and state definitions and placement procedures.
